April 2015 Income
April isn’t historically one of the higher paying months with only 5 companies paying. I did receive a $36.23 special dividend from TROW, which helped. You’ll note that this wasn’t automatically reinvested as my dividends usually are. I guess that is just a consequence of the special dividend.
My quarterly GE dividends are also not quite as high as they will be shortly. My latest GE purchase happened after the ex-dividend date so I was not able to get the full amount. I’ll be getting around $95/quarter with GE’s current payout but was only able to receive $47 this time.
I received $160.89 in dividends for April 2015 vs $89.10 last April. The really cool thing is that my total dividends received in 2015 add up to $1157.82, more than I received in the entire year of 2013 and nearly half of what I received last year. (And we’re only through the first quarter!) The remainder of 2015 is shaping up to be even stronger.
